Resolving disputes creatively

Collaborative divorce can be faster and cheaper than litigation

When people in New York go through the divorce process, they generally have different emotions. There could be sadness, anger, regret, anxiety about the future and other emotions as well. While going through these emotions the people involved also need to make some very important decisions as the parties go through the divorce process. They must separate one shared life into two separate lives and that is not always an easy process, especially when the couple has children they will continue to raise.

Naturally there will be some disagreements during this process. People usually do not agree on everything and as the couple can be going through a number of emotions during the process, sometimes these disagreements can be very contentious. However, even the most contentious disagreements will be resolved by the end of every divorce. The couple will either reach agreements themselves or eventually have a judge decide for them through litigation.

Many people want to avoid litigation though if possible and there are methods available to couples to help them resolve their disagreements. One of these methods is the collaborative divorce process. Through this process the couple and their attorneys work together to find solutions without going to court.

This process is generally faster than litigation and also has the advantage of generally being cheaper than litigation. Couples will not have to pay for motion hearings and trials which can be very expensive. While the costs vary from divorce to divorce, collaborative divorce can be approximately one-tenth the cost of litigating the entire divorce.

Many couples go through divorces in New York every year. Each divorce is unique and the results will vary as well as the method people use to resolve their disputes. One of the options people have is to use the collaborative divorce process. This is a process when people work together to resolve the issues themselves. This may not be the right option for every divorce, but it can be a cheaper and faster process for those who use it. Experienced attorneys understand the various methods for resolving divorces and may be able to guide one through it.
